First Run of the New Year

I biffed it. Flew through the air Superman fashion and hit the very frozen ground. Hard. Really really hard.

I got up.

I kept going.

This is either a sign that I should hang up running forever or that I am tough enough to call myself a runner. I am choosing the later statement.

Now I must tend to my bleeding knee, bruised hip, and wrist that could possibly be broken (I am typing one handed).

Today's workout:
30 minutes. Week one, Day one, Couch to 5K.

I have so been there! You are a REAL runner...you know that you because you got up and kept going...GREAT JOB! Hope your wrist really isn't broken...

James said...

Yes, you are a runner. I'll never forget when I started running with my wife and could only run in 15-20 second spurts while walking 5 minutes between running. It was horrible.

I hope you did not hurt your wrist. You have to learn to not try to break your fall. It is hard to do.

Keep going and kicking butt.

Great job getting up and going again! I really hope your wrist isn't broken and that it starts feeling better soon. The one hand typing is not fun :)

Heather said...

You are definitely a runner - a nonrunner would just lay on the ground and wait for a ride home. Hope the wrist is okay!

Dawn said...

Oh no! Sorry to hear about the tumble. Hope your knee gets better! (don't pick the scabs!)

Kate said...

You are real runner, no doubt about that.

I think that to myself everytime I'm out in sub zero weather, dodging ice patches running, I'm a real runner! What do you people in warm climates know about running? ha ha

Melanie said...

I saw your facebook status before my reader showed your post... OMG. I hope your wrist is not too bad, but you are definitely a hardcore runner :D

tfh said...

Ouch. Does this mean there's another runner out there as clumsy as I am? (And if this was your first or even second time doing this, the answer is NO.) Hope you're okay!

RunningLaur said...

oh no! Feel better, and yes keep running - the war stories only make it more intresting!

Marlene said...

Oh no Carly! Take care of that wrist. I can't believe you got up and finished the run... I would have been crying for help!

Running Around Acres said...

you are a runner and more of a runner than I am. Hope the wrist isn't broke. Keep up the good work.

BeachRunner said...

Oh no! I hope your wrist is ok. Getting up and treking on is a power move, but one handed blogging is really hardcore. I recommend red wine therapy.

teacherwoman said...

OUCH!

You are a runner! hope you heal fast!

Run Mommy said...

Definitely a runner.. a Non-runner would have taken it as a sign to stop. :)

RBR said...

Most definitely a runner! A Non-runner would have EVER gone out in the ice and snow to run.

I hope you heal up quickly and you get triple points for 1. running in the snow and ice, 2. continuing after injury and 3. Drawing blood, because that always make you a bad@$$.

Great job getting up. We all fall from time to time. You should have seen what stayed on my leg for over a year. :)

Lisa Slow-n-Steady said...

yes, you are tough enough to call yourself a runner!

akshaye said...

yep.. no doubt you are a runner a. for getting out there, b. for picking yourself up. Way to go!

Marci said...

Real runner for sure! Way to tough it out!

Running Through Time said...

Great job on getting back up and continuing. You may want to see a doctor about the wrist though.

A runner is born! I tumbled a few months ago....the key thing to do now is the next time you run on that very same spot you spilled....flip it off! That's what I did and the karma I felt was awesome!!!

Brianna said...

Ouch! Rest up and know that the road will be there when your body is ready. I hope your wrist is better than it sounds!

Cyndi said...

UGH...at least you don't run on your hands ha ha! I hope the wrist is ok!

Carolina John said...

Oh man. i hate that feeling. get plenty of rest, you'll feel better soon. i'm still letting my knees heal.

MCM Mama said...

Good job getting up and keeping going. Hope your wrist is ok!

Jess said...

That sucks! I have SO done that and it's not pretty. But usually the ego is more bruised than the body.

Vava said...

Holy Cow! I hope your wrist is not broken!!! At least you didn't break your ankle, for (in theory) you can still run with a bum wrist.

All the best!

Tammy said...

Oh no!!
Yes, you are really a runner! Great job sticking it out.

lindsay said...

RooBabs said...

Yowza! I hope that your pride is the only thing that's damaged. Great job for picking yourself up and continuing!!
